Food in the Hood: Shoreditch
Words by Bea Mustocea, Sunday 31 December 2017

While Shoreditch's food scene has been famously associated with the smells and tastes of the Indian sub-continent, there is more, much more to the heart of East London. Cut-price Bangladeshi restaurants share the grounds with the trendiest restaurants London has to offer and it makes for one of our favourite areas to eat in. If you're looking for help to narrow down the myriad of options, have a look below.


Cuckooz presents our top 5 picks for nosh around our Shoreditch nests...


1.    Beigel Bake


More often associated to an after hours stop, Beigel Bake’s 24-hour opening and central location on Brick Lane have caused a massive increase in popularity, the hot bread baking all night long causing for the shop to gain a soft spot with locals and tourists alike. Whether you’re looking for an inexpensive snack after a night out, or for a rainbow bagel to Instagram, one thing is certan – Beigel Bake has got you covered.


2.    Pizza Pilgrims


Having recently become an Internet sensation due to their incredibly adventurous dessert pizza, which welcomes customers to bring their own chocolate bars to be dessert-ified, some might have forgotten about Pizza Pilgrims main specialty. This favourite Shoreditch pizza joint manages to harmoniously combine the traditional with the experimental, all whilst delivering some of the best pizza experiences around.


3.    On the Bab


Result of the crystallization of the Korean street food trend making waves on the London food scene, On the Bab delivers quick and tasty street food in an industrial setting, offering an upgrade to the experience while maintaining it as authentic as possible. Don’t forget to try the Soju with beer with your food; we’re sure you won’t regret it.


4.    Andina


From Ceviche in Soho to the East End, Andina brings the all day Peruvian soul food to Shoreditch. Originated from the inspiration passed down generations by chef Martin Morales’ Mamita Natys and her village in the Andes, Andina becoming a true ode to the colourful world of Peru, which is sure to brighten even the gloomiest London day.


5.    Dishoom


Wherever there’s a Dishoom, there’s a queue! That seems to be the rule ever since the Indian restaurant has taken over the London food scene by pairing fantastic flavor with good prices. While the main stop for Indian food lovers seems to be the King’s Cross location, Shoreditch is quickly gaining momentum, making the East End venue a tough contender.
